Tempers flared when Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and Customs officers raided two pubs in Jalan Rahim Kajai 14 in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur. Despite protests from 42East owner Trevor Neil Simpson, 44, the officers broke the lock and entered the premises and confiscated items like chairs, tables, sound systems, flat screen TVs and beer kegs. They did the same at another pub down the road. While a DBKL officer said that they had sent notices to the operators to close their business, Simpson insisted that he did not receive any. He then asked for a copy of the notice or any document from the officers but the officers said they did not have any with them. "They also said that I need an entertainment licence but we do not have any live bands or performances and only play piped-in music," he said. A furious Simpson said he had applied for a temporary licence in November last year and had been renewing it every month. "We were told by DBKL that within a week, the planning department, health department, Fire and Rescue Department and Royal Malaysian Customs Department would visit our shop but only the planning department came and they gave us the approval," he said, adding that they were waiting for their permit before they could apply for an alcohol licence. In January, they were told that their permit would not be approved and were told to appeal the decision. "We sent an appeal letter on Jan 26 but did not receive any reply from the DBKL," he said. Meanwhile, Simpson said their temporary licence was renewed every month but the DBKL came out with a new ruling on Jan 29 that no pubs were allowed in Jalan Rahim Kajai 14. His wife Angela Thexeira said they had used their life savings to open the restaurant and the ruling was made after they had started their business. "We spent RM200,000 on renovations. If they had told us from the start that we would not be able to operate the business, we would not have wasted our money," she said.
A Customs Department officer present during the raid said the outlet did not have a liquor licence while a DBKL officer said there have been complaints from residents across the street about noise from the pubs. According to a statement issued by the DBKL corporate communications unit, the two bars were raided in accordance with the Entertainment Act 1993 (Section 4) because they did not have a valid business licence. The same outlet was also raided in January this year but the owners had continued to operate their business.
When contacted, Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng said he was puzzled over DBKL's actions. "A year ago, there were complaints from a few residents living across the street but DBKL had replied to me that the complaints were without basis because only cafe and restaurant licences were approved along Jalan Rahim Kajai 14. No pub licences were given out. "DBKL had also said that upon investigation, patrons there were found to be orderly and that only slow music was being played," he said. He said he did not understand why DBKL had enforced the ruling to disallow pubs from operating in the area.

what do you think of our site Sunshine Coast man who invested $165,000 with Capital One still waiting for news of his money eight years on

Posted: 15 May 2011 06:45 PM PDT

JOHN Weatherley should be relaxing in the twilight years of his retirement, free from financial hardship.

Instead, the 69-year-old Sunshine Beach resident must work full time in a tedious job just to make ends meet. Across day and night shifts, he watches over a boiler that cooks offal to make pet food.

He continues to toil because his $165,000 nest egg has vanished, seemingly without a trace.

Mr Weatherley placed the money eight years ago with Capital One, a now-defunct investment firm based in a Malaysian tax haven and once overseen by expatriate Australian directors with chequered backgrounds.

One of the directors was a struck-off solicitor, while another was a Perth businessman whose investment company had previously run foul of industry regulators.

Mr Weatherley is among more than 400 mostly senior Australians and New Zealanders still battling to recover in excess of $US23 million ($21.5 million) in principal – and million of dollars of additional missing interest – since the scheme collapsed seven years ago.

Some, including at least one Malaysian politician, speculate that up to $US35 million may have been poured into the debentures, purportedly focused on blue-chip stocks, precious metals and property.

“I’ve never stopped working,” Mr Weatherley said.

“When I invested in there I had already lost money in a franchise and I thought if we invested this money, by 2006 we’d be right and be able to look to retire. And it didn’t happen so I just kept working.”

Since 2005, a complex series of ongoing legal actions has played out in a Malaysian High Court between Capital One, its trustee EC Trust and three former senior executives of the investment company.

Capital One and EC Trust allege in court documents that Australian nationals Phil Crane, David Young and David Eley and five of their companies defrauded investors of $US23.4 million between 2002 and 2004.

Their lawsuit also seeks to recover $US3.9 million allegedly loaned to Mr Crane, $US513,000 borrowed by Mr Young and $US792,000 lent to one of their companies.

But six years after the case was filed in the Malaysian territory of Labuan, there is still no end in sight as all parties wait for a reserved judgment. As a result, investors still have no idea where their money went or if they will recover it.

Complicating matters, some of the investors are wary of EC Trust, a Malaysian entity operated by Australian tax lawyer Peter Searle. They complain he has ignored repeated requests for information and should have been able to retrieve the money by now, allegations he disputes.

Investors are also mystified how Mr Searle’s entity, EC Corporate Management, could have served as a director of Capital One at the same time his EC Trust acted as trustee.

Mr Searle rejects the suggestion that this could pose a potential conflict of interest. “It would be ludicrous for the sole shareholder to renounce its responsibilities as director of the company,” he said.

He maintains that he is doing everything possible to recover the money and takes credit for stopping the alleged fraud in its early stages. “They were certainly conducting a scam in the latter stages and, because we suspected them, we stopped them making any investments on 19 November 2004 and started legal proceedings,” Mr Searle said.

The years since have not dimmed the hunger for justice burning inside investor Don Gardner. The 58-year-old Adelaide resident and his wife put the bulk of their superannuation, $180,000, into the debentures, essentially a loan he expected to come due in early 2005 with about 10 per cent of interest.

Over the past six years he has written more than 165 letters to politicians, government departments, regulators, banks and other officials in both Australia and Malaysia in a vain attempt to get help. Mr Gardner said the Australian Securities & Investments Commission and the Australian Federal Police had each told him that the matter should fall under the other’s purview.

Battling depression and forced to go back to full-time work, Mr Gardner said some investors had lost their homes and at least one had committed suicide. “The only one who can recover that money for us is the Lord. I just can’t sit on my hands and do nothing,” he said.

A Brisbane accountant and a lawyer, who reviewed the scheme for burnt clients, said they believed it had all the hallmarks of a scam and they didn’t believe investors would ever recover their money. “It was a farce from the beginning,” the accountant said.

The lawyer noted that the Australian Taxation Office had already given his clients permission to write off their loss. “They concluded that there was no expectation of a return and authorised it be written down as a capital loss,” he said.

Mr Crane, Mr Young and Mr Eley, who launched unsuccessful appeals in Malaysian court against EC Trust and Capital One, could not be reached for comment.

Mr Crane served as the sole director of Perth-based Secure Finance & Investment Services, which faced allegations by ASIC in 2002 that it was operating an unregistered managed investment scheme. ASIC had also appointed receivers to some entities and had sought to wind up the company.

But the proceedings were settled without an admission of liability, with Mr Crane providing undertakings to ASIC.

The corporate watchdog determined that about 200 investors tipped in nearly $6 million to Secure’s offshore funds between 2000 and 2002.

Mr Crane’s colleague, Mr Eley, was struck off as a solicitor in Perth in 2004 after a tribunal concluded he had “been in breach of fundamental legal and professional obligations to his clients”. Their ruling found that he was “unfit to practise law”.

ASIC also banned a Perth financial planner for life in 2004 after it found he had promoted debentures through EC Trust without proper licensing. The planner, Neil Manning, had enticed 17 investors to commit $1.5 million after claiming returns would exceed 50 per cent and guaranteed at least 9 per cent.

Nuclear Catastrophe: How the lack of fundamental research on alternative energy led to a wrong energy policy

Posted: 15 May 2011 06:40 PM PDT

An open letter from an international group of scientists and engineers

by Dr. Stoyan Sarg Acad. Dr. Asparuh Petrakiev, Dr. Andrew Michrowski, Dr. Victor Zhuravlev, Dr. Todor Proychev

May 14, 2011

The expansion of nuclear power during the past 60 years was dominated by the opinion that there is no alternative to nuclear energy. Presently it provides about 14% of the total energy. The policy makers even envisioned that this would be the energy of the future. The dangerous consequences, however, were not correctly predicted. They include nuclear catastrophes from earthquakes, terrorist attacks, nuclear weapons acquired by rogue regimes, and contamination from radioactive waste. During the last one and a half years, the average rate of the earthquakes increased 3 times, and this trend continues. The main reason for the adopted energy strategy was the lack of fundamental research on alternatives to nuclear energy.

Nuclear energyPresently, the total number of commercial nuclear reactors in the world is 442, the number of research reactors is 250, and the number of reactors in ships and submarines is 180. By countries: USA – 102 and 14 under construction; Europe – 195; Japan – 55; Russia – 45 and 6 under construction; Canada – 20; China – 13  and 25 under construction.

Radioactive spill and contamination may come not only from nuclear accidents, but also from the highly radioactive waste material. This waste grows by 12,000 metric tons per year—a volume equivalent to 100 double-decker buses or a two-story building with a footprint the size of a basketball court. By year 2015, it will reach about 250,000 tons. Its management is problematic, and there is a constant leak ending in the food chain, but this is not sensational enough to catch the media's attention. The nuclear catastrophes in Chernobyl[1] and recently in Japan[2] show that they are unpredictable, and the consequences, unmanageable.[3] A similar disaster might happen in any country relying on nuclear power. The radioactive contamination of the atmosphere and the ocean with its long-term health consequences is equally hazardous for the population of all countries.

Are there alternative options that can replace nuclear power? From a scientific point of view, a solution exists, but it has been neglected for decades. Specifically, we must re-evaluate what is currently being taught in the universities concerning the concept of space as "the physical vacuum". The concept of the physical vacuum adopted at the beginning of the 20th century does not correspond to reality. That is why a wide range of phenomena cannot be explained logically. While human logic is blamed for the failure, the enigmas themselves are indications that some of the adopted assumptions are wrong.

Since mathematical logic does not have the restrictions of physical reality, abstract theories can be built which are based on wrong assumptions. But sooner or later, physical phenomena will be encountered that cannot be explained by such theories. This kind of physics does not offer a complete understanding of processes in the micro cosmos. According to current teaching in physics, nuclear energy arises from the nuclear forces, yet the physical origin of these forces is a mystery. Why? This is because according to the currently adopted concept, the space is empty, while at the same time it has quantum mechanical properties. Many physics scholars are not aware that in 1922 Albert Einstein came to the conclusion that there is an indispensable need for a space-filling ether. "According to the general theory of relativity, space is endowed with physical qualities; in this sense, therefore, there exists an Ether. According to the general theory of relativity, space without ether is unthinkable."[4] Much accumulated evidence now indicates that space contains a unique superfine but dense lattice structure whose elements are far beyond the reach of the most powerful electron microscopes. It possesses not only quantum mechanical properties but also defines the speed of light, the relativistic effects, the propagation of Newtonian gravitation, inertia, and the electrical and magnetic fields. In contemporary physics, only some of the properties of this structure are described by mathematical expressions, while its existence is dismissed. This leads to incomplete knowledge of some essential physical processes at the level of the micro cosmos.

The correct understanding of these processes is of vital importance now at the time of the global energy crisis. The main question is: Is there a safer replacement for nuclear energy? The correct answer is: Yes! It comes from the revised concept of space—the physical vacuum [5,6,7]. The superfine structure of the physical vacuum is a source of two types of primary energy: (1) Static Energy not of EM type related to gravitational mass with a detectable signature: Casimir Forces; and (2) Dynamic type of energy (lower amount), which is behind the electrical and magnetic fields and has a detectable signature of 2.72K estimated from the Cosmic Microwave Background.[6] THE STATIC TYPE OF ENERGY IS THE PRIMARY SOURCE OF THE NUCLEAR ENERGY. IT IS NOT CONTAINED IN NUCLEI BUT IS UNIFORMLY DISTRIBUTED IN SPACE, SO EVERY CUBIC CM CONTAINS 1.37 E20 JOULES = 3.8 E13 (KWH) OF THIS ENERGY. IT IS ALSO THE SOURCE OF THE DYNAMIC TYPE OF ENERGY, KNOWN AS ZERO POINT ENERGY (ZPE), WHICH COULD BE REACHED BY SPECIFIC ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERACTIONS.

The alternative solution for replacement of the energy from nuclear plants will come from development of other methods and techniques for extracting energy from the primary source (1) mentioned above. The theoretical understanding of this non-EM type of energy is elaborated in the treatise BSM – Supergravitation Unified Theory (BSM-SG).[6]  The theory also describes the structural features of the electron[8] that permitted to suggest a method for accessing this hidden space energy. The method, called the "Heterodyne Resonance Mechanism,"[9] involves an electromagnetically activated plasma where quantum mechanical interactions occur between oscillating ion-electron pairs and the space-time continuum.  Other alternatives to nuclear power, such as Cold Fusion and Torsion technologies, access the same primary source and they also lack official support.[10]

In the university text books of the past 50 years, information that could challenge the validity of the ether concept was gradually excluded, so generations of physicist are presently unaware of the problems discussed amongst physicists in the first half of the 20th century. Since the ether was not accepted, it could not be envisioned as the primary source of nuclear energy. This has had a direct impact on research that might lead to alternatives to nuclear power. Although such research has not been officially funded, it has been addressed by some lone researchers and research groups. In the time of the Internet, this new research, known as free energy, zero point energy, or energy from the vacuum, has spread to different countries. It involves individuals or collaborating groups. Without funded scientific research, however, the physics is not well understood and the positive results are sporadic or not reproducible. The lack of official support, as well as opposition from some established scientific groups, diverts attention from this research. One additional concern, expressed by us, is the need for simultaneous research on the side effects. When exceeding some power level the Zeropoint energy devices may radiate scalar (longitudinal) waves that have some biological effects. Most individual researchers are not aware of this issue. One should remember that the adoption of nuclear energy, for example, was preceded by decades of scientific research on radioactivity. Consequently, the new technology based on the energy from the physical vacuum may not be suitable for use in the home, so it should still be centralized. The most suitable location initially will be the nuclear plant locations, where the existing infrastructure may be used for power distribution.

In conclusion:

Environmental damage with health consequences from a nuclear catastrophe is a more immediate threat than global warming.  Alternatives to nuclear energy based on methods not recognized so far must be considered, such as the possibility of accessing the energy of the physical vacuum by the Heterodyne Resonance Mechanism. The need for scientific research on these alternatives must be officially recognized and funded. Implementations of promising technologies could be made available in the very near future. The safer replacement of nuclear energy will not eliminate the need for oil, but could ease the tension caused by gradually shrinking oil resources.

Sdr Chian Heng Kai’s last blog posting: “入阁为了谁?”
